Tight ducks, of course he/she could have some but I make my own so they cost pennies. What goes around always comes around
I would have felt hurt as well , hardly brothers in angling was it ?, Two leads , it was hardly going to break the bank , tight wad !Well the muppet who left there leads at home was me I did this on the ribble yesterday long and short of what happened i had my request to borrow 2 leads i told him I would return them to him but was turned down
After packing up to go home i done some Internet searching and found angling direct in Preston was open so after a quick call the chap called josh in the store agreed to let me purchase some leads and feeders via a phone call payment with a bank card my wife paid and I collected some 20 min later 10 min before they shut big thanks to josh for helping me out
Yes I know I should have spare leads and I should double check everything but it does happen
I have always lived to help where I can especially fishing growing up we always leant each other bits of tackle friends and strangers of course I'm not giving rods out to people I don't know but it the past I've given to total strangers bait hooks weights rod rests alsort of tackle because I had it spare and they needed it
I know the chap had every right to deny my request but belive it or not I felt hurt when I shouldn't have he didnot know me but I would never have done that to someone that's why I asked the question what would you have done it will not put me off lending people tackle to fish with but what it did do was make me realise there are anglers out there who will not help anyone I have never seen or experiencedo this before or thought I would
Just for the record I didn't ask to keep them in told the chap my dilemma my leads are 50 miles away and I would return them to him even by post I'm not a bumper just got caught out
I’ve often thought about making my own but just can’t see the appeal for what I’m actually saving.Tight ducks, of course he/she could have some but I make my own so they cost pennies. What goes around always comes around
You don’t even have to look that hard... I bought 100 size 8 diamond eye swivels From eBay £3.95 inc postage and the quality is very goodI’ve often thought about making my own but just can’t see the appeal for what I’m actually saving.
I give 10 quid the other day for 10 NGT 3oz grippers.
if Nash and korda were the only options then yes I’d be doing it but they can be so cheap in the right places it’s hardly worth the bother for me anyway
You’ll see him again and perhaps next time he’ll need a favour of you and you can take great delight in reminding him about Sunday 26th July.....the miserable sod!
What's up with camper vans?Yes. I would give him a couple. Unless he had arrived in a camper van.
In the unlikely event he ever did ask you to borrow a couple of leads, say "your in luck mate, no problem here you go. Do you know I had the same problem the other week and some tight fisted to@@er wouldn't help me? Some people eh?"Bill
I would never be that lucky knowing my luck next time I forget something there would only be tight ar5e there again .....oh what a day that would be Richards version a fish of a life time photo now that would be perfect or him asking to borrow a lead I think I'd through every spare one in the river in font of him the tell him I haven't got one
